PHC Blend of Mashbills
I've sampled a few of the other PHCs- the wheater, the cognac finish, and some others I'm not even sure anymore which ones they were. All were delicious. This past year I would not miss out, I jumped on 2 bottles of the PHC blend of mashbills ASAP. It's a mix of a wheated and rye bourbon. I love my wheated bourbons, and as an EC 18 fan I like the Heaven Hill rye too. This though, just doesn't work for me. It's been a few months now and I'm just about to kill my first bottle. Even the fans admit the finish is weak, but for a barrel proofer hovering around 130 proof, it's not just the finish. This thing lacks flavor! With proof this high it should be bursting at the seams with... STUFF! Anything! I just find this tame and dry. It's like a dish that needs salt. It's not bad, it's just not special. For the price and hype, I want special.
